A SIX-YEAR-OLD girl has used Black History month to pay tribute to a selection of groundbreaking women.
Ava Rogers started the project in 2015, dressing up as names including Angela Davis, Michelle Obama, and Oprah.
Last year, she gave the world tennis champ Serena Williams, and lesser-known but equally groundbreaking women.
“It was important for me to complete another set of pictures with my daughter because of the life lessons and edification that stem from seeing and learning about other black women,” Chauncia Rogers, Ava’s mother, told For Harriet.
Representing a variety of career fields was important for Rogers.
“I wanted to include doctors, lawyers, educators, scholars, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, activists, etc,” she said. “I think it’s important for Ava to see representation in multiple fields.”
She added: “I wanted Ava to learn that there are women who look like her that have accomplished great things. And because they have paved the way, her dreams can be realities.”
